within 48 hours, the threat to massachusetts, boston, and the convention was completely eliminated. the thousands or millions of man hours that would have been wasted had it not been them giving us that investigation, they maybe still be standing on the bridges. maybe they would have prevented the marathon bombings by being there looking for the terrorists, but that was a tremendous savings. in my view, putting other analysts in beijing paid for itself in savings to u.s. taxpayers because of being able to resolve an issue of terrorism when there was no intent or knowledge that that office would be a key player in the war on terror. >> next question. yes, sir, here. >> john duncan, florida a&m university college of law. we talk about the chinese and japanese russian mafia here in the u.s. how about our u.s. gangs possibly overseas, and i'm thinking not only cooperation with other gangs, but also the national security impacts back on us. and because i say, you know, a lot of the new millionaires will be in china and russia and that's where the money is going. >> anybody like to take on th

disease. >> this question of preventative care is part of why president obama went to massachusetts and said this obama care is like romney care. one part is it will provide access to preventative care services for a broader group of people and that will bring down health care costs not only for individual households but also for state and the nation. why, then, are republican governors opting out of something that would, in fact, bring down costs? >> one of the things you brought up, you brought up the disparity in terms of coverage among different ethnic groups. there's also a dispar fi in quality of care separate from coverage and that's one of the big challenges with the medicaid program. for example, in new york state, for every dollar a private insurance pays a doctor, medicaid pays 30 cents. that means a lot of people don't get those preventative screenings. when they get diagnosed for cancer on medicaid, you get diagnosed at a more advanced stage for cancer because it wasn't diagnosed earlier because you didn't have access to primary care. >> that's not wrong that medicaid reimb
